Hey, how come we never talk about Charles Addams?
I barely ever see compilations of his work for sale.
I barely ever see his cartoons being blogged.
His tumblr tag is sparse as hell.
So many people have no idea that the Addams Family began as recurring characters in what was basically "The Far Side" of the 1940’s and 50’s.
He invented the Addams Family and he barely gets any credit. People today think they started with the TV series, or worse, they think they started in a series of films they falsely attribute to Tim Burton.
And seventy years later his jokes feel as fresh and sharp as ever. Some are just funnier and funnier the more you let them sink in.
That patent attourney immediately tried the death ray.
